Caring + Challenging + Living + Growing
Advice from Bishop Christopher is that local churches should decide whether or not to remain open in the light of their particular circumstances. St Mary’s and Christ Church have decided to close for public worship until the end of January. Members of Christ Church are invited to join the live stream service at St Mary’s:

Welcome to Christ Church, part of the team parish of Mortlake with East Sheen.
In these difficult times we appreciate that many individuals and organisations are going through a tough period. With all of our churches having been closed for public worship for several weeks, we have obviously not been receiving one-off donations from visitors, which are an important part of our fund-raising. If you feel you are able to give even a small amount to the ongoing work of our churches, you can do so via Paypal by clicking here or on our JustGiving page by clicking here – thank you
We aim to be a family friendly and inclusive church welcoming everyone and providing a space in which people can explore faith and ask questions. You can find details of our services, our children’s groups and other activities by scrolling down this page or using the Menu above. Follow our Twitter feed or Facebook page links at the top of this page and scroll down to see photos or videos of recent events.
An early work of the architect
Arthur Blomfield, the church building, which is in stone, was erected
between 1862 and 1864. It was built on farmland at the entrance of East Sheen
Common. It was originally planned to be opened in April 1863; however, the
tower collapsed shortly before completion and had to be rebuilt. The church was
finally completed and consecrated nine months later, on 13 January
1864. The church has been Grade II listed with English
Heritage since 1983.
In “normal times” Christ Church is usually open every day from 9.00am to around 5.00pm to pray, contemplate or just to sit in peace. Scroll to the bottom of the page to check our location. On Saturday mornings we have a Welcome Cafe from 10.30am – 12.30pm in church: do drop in for a chat or to look around our beautiful building.
At Christ Church we take our responsibility to safeguard children, young people and vulnerable adults extremely seriously.
If you have any safeguarding concerns or would like to know more about our safeguarding procedures you can find the contact details of the relevant people here .
You can find the Diocesan Safeguarding Policies and procedures ‘A Safe Church’ here
In common with other churches in the Diocese of Southwark, we have a Mission Action Plan which is reviewed regularly. You can read our plan here. As a church we are committed to inclusion and social justice and many of our members are active in local community groups.
If you live in the area of the parish covered by the church (you can click here to check) we hope you will feel we are “your” church and we are always happy to talk with you about a wedding, baptism or funeral in church or any other matter which concerns you.
